Having recorded many people in the Borris area associated with the Kavanagh family, I made my way to Borris House, to meet with Andrew Murrough-Kavanagh. We sat in the drawing-room where he spoke about his long lineage, recalling some of his ancestors, and his affection for these people. Other topics covered included the artefacts associated with the family, the extended family name and the employees in the house in his grandfather’s time. Finally, he spoke about his feelings of security and belonging in his ability to trace his ancestors back to 1590, and he also spoke about the estate today.
